    WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Attorney General Eric Holder was Tuesday to meet with religious leaders from across all faiths to discuss ways to stem a wave of attacks against Muslims and mosques. The talks would examine measures the Department of Justice "can take against rising anti-Muslim hate and acts of violence and intimidation against American Muslims," the broad coalition said in a press release. The 4:00 pm (2000 GMT) meeting comes as an evangelical church in Florida vowed to press ahead with plans to burn a Koran on Saturday, to mark the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks....

    MSNBC's Rachel Maddow is actually about to win an award for her "civility" and "tolerance." "The Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom Award, established by Interfaith Alliance in 1998, recognizes individuals who courageously promote democratic values, defend religious freedom and reinvigorate informed civic participation," reads a statement released by the organization Monday. "The award recognizes individuals whose actions have embodied the values of civility, tolerance, diversity and cooperation in the advancement of public dialogue and public policy on traditionally controversial and divisive issues."

    1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people. 2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means,...

    SAN JOSE, California, February 28, 2007 ( - A new campaign to force Christian influence out of the public sphere was launched last week in San Jose, California, in response to what is seen as a returning strength of religious organizations in American society. Led by members of the Interfaith Alliance, an organization dedicated to countering the influence of the conservative Christian Coalition on federal politics, the new campaign is designed to promote policies that would silence the political voice of the “religious right.” Called ‘First Amendment First’, the campaign has been billed as a defense of the separation of...

    Tennessee officials closed an investigation into a so-called ex-gay ministry because of a lack of evidence to support child abuse allegations. But the Memphis organization that says instilling Christian beliefs can keep gays from acting on their homosexual desires continues to be the center of controversy. The Tennessee Department of Children's Services began an investigation into Love In Action, which advertises homosexual conversion therapy for adolescents, after a 16-year-old boy's blog started causing a stir in the blogosphere.

    The liberal Interfaith Alliance is backing a hate-crimes bill that adds "sexual orientation" to its list of protected list. The legislation, reintroduced by two Democrats and two Republicans in Congress, would expand federal jurisdiction to cover violent hate crimes committed "because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender or disability" of the victim.

    Friday, May 6, 2005 Dr. James Dobson, 'evangelical devil'Posted: May 6, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern By Kevin McCullough © 2005 The elections of 2004 taught America some very clear lessons. The most obvious, perhaps, is just how much the American left hate people of faith – true faith, genuine faith. And the ones they hate most of all are evangelical Christians. And the one they hate most out of that group is Dr. James Dobson. Thursday's edition of the Denver Post was particularly ripe with quotes from the left as to their true feelings: "If one thing makes people uncomfortable, it...
  • Nation's Christian Roots Attacked-(lib "Interfaith Alliance" protesting our Christian heritage!)

    A left-leaning group called the Interfaith Alliance is protesting the influence of Christianity in U.S. history. A liberal action group has challenged the views of a well-known conservative who points in detail to the influence Christianity has had on U.S. history. David Barton, founder of Wallbuilders, regularly gives tours of the U.S. Capitol to spotlight the faith-based underpinnings of key moments in American history. But the Interfaith Alliance—a group from the religious left—recently objected to a Barton excursion, accusing him of revising history. The tour in question was for Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, but the alliance didn't complain to...

    Walter Cronkite long projected the image of the respected, objective newsman who didn't allow his personal views to enter the public square. No more, says the retired CBS anchorman in a direct mail letter he has sent out across the nation. The Cronkite letter comes from "The Interfaith Alliance" -- a liberal New York-based coalition of religious groups that oddly includes "agnostics and atheists." The group's letter bears Cronkite's photo on its envelope, identifying him as the "Honorary Chairman" -- with this blunt quote: "For years I kept my opinions to myself. But now I must speak out." In...

    ( - Sen. John Kerry's presidential campaign has hired a new director of religion outreach, who is being described by a Catholic group as "a curious choice." Mara Vanderslice, who formerly worked as religion outreach director for Democrat Howard Dean, was raised without any faith and didn't become an evangelical Christian until she attended Earlham College, a Quaker school known for its adherence to pacifism, the Catholic League said on Monday. According to Catholic League President William Donohue, when Vanderslice was in college she was active in the Earlham Socialist Alliance, a group that supports convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and...

    New Clergy Group to Push Liberal Causes by Mark Tooley Posted Jan 9, 2004 Frustrated that they continue to be overshadowed by conservative religious leaders, a new association of politically liberal clergy has emerged. Mostly comprised of old National Council of Churches (NCC) types, the Clergy Leadership Network (CLN) will focus on opposing U.S. military action and fighting for a larger federal welfare state, while criticizing religious conservatives. Several of CLN's leaders were also formerly leaders in the Interfaith Alliance, another liberal religious group founded ten years ago with the nearly identical purpose of counteracting the "Religious Right." "We're reaching...

    Here in Louisiana Saturday, the Democrats won another important and hotly contested race, mainly because African-American churches supported the Democratic candidate. The well-funded conservative campaign waged by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Suzie Terrell could not overcome the illegal use of black churches by the incumbent Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu. Landrieu learned how to use these ministers and their church assets just as nearly every Democrat has done when running for office over the last 40 years. Landrieu won 52% to 48%, an impressive showing, given the fact that a very popular Republican President and his party pulled out all...
